Institutional ContextSustainable Technology Entrepreneurship for Scientists and EngineersColorado State University• Land Grant Mission (Ag Sciences, Engineering, Extension)• Peace Corps Legacy• Engineering Research and Focus on Clean Energy • $545 million per faculty in engineering• Clean Energy and BOP Spinoff Companies • Envirofit International, Solix Biofuels, Abound Solar• GSSE Program• Entrepreneurial Community but No FormalEntrepreneurship Courses for Engineering Grad Students
  • 4. Institutional ContextCSU Peace Corps Legacy•Former CSU Civil Engineering Professor Maury Albertson (1919 – 2009),was director of the U.S. Congressional study on the Point 4 Youth Corps (anearly name for the Peace Corps initiative).•Albertson and CSU colleagues authored the book, "New Frontiers forAmerican Youth - Perspective on the Peace Corps," which served as theblueprint for the Peace Corps.• To date, over 1500 CSU alumni have served in thePeace Corps since its creation in 1961.• In 2010-2011, CSU was named 10th amonguniversities with the most nominations for Peace Corpsservice and 1st in the nation for the recruitment of highlyskilled volunteers.• Currently, 93 CSU alumni serve as volunteers.
  • 5. Institutional ContextEngineering Research Programs• On a per-faculty basis, NSF ranked Colorado State 1st in the nationamong all public universities in federally funded research.• Annual research expenditures of $546,000 per faculty member in FY10.• Strong programs in engines and energy conversion, atmosphericsciences, lasers and optics, biofuels, solar energy, etc.

  • 8. Institutional ContextThe GSSE Program The GSSE is a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) program at CSU whose goal is to prepare a new generation of entrepreneurs who aim to leverage CSU’s research, technology and business know-how to create, build and grow global, sustainable enterprises with lasting impact.
  • 9. Institutional ContextThe GSSE Program GSSE students form Enterprise Teams and work in base of the pyramid markets on ventures that serve people, planet and profit.
  • 10. Institutional ContextThe GSSE Program GSEE Cohort Approach • Annual Class of 25 students • 50/50 split of international to U.S. • Very experienced (average age 30) • GSSE students are engineers, managers, scientists, economists, RPCVs & other development workers • Assembled into E-teams of 3 to 5 members.
  • 11. Institutional ContextThe GSSE Program GSSE International Cohort Approach – Iraq, Philippines, India, Chile, Ghana, Mongolia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Nepal, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Nigeria, USA

  • 13. Motivation for ENT Program in Eng and AgSustainable Technology Entrepreneurship for Scientists and Engineers• Most early GSSE projects were technology intensive: • distribution network for solar lights and radios (Ghana and Peru), • small diesel engines for irrigation (Bangladesh, Ethiopia), • hydraulic hybrid technology transit buses (India) • bio-diverse products from wildlife-friendly agriculture (Cambodia).• Solutions to these problems required substantial technological expertisefrom engineering and/or agricultural sciences.•The GSSE program did not include a formal means of interfacing GSSEstudents with engineering and agricultural science students.• Meanwhile…no formal entrepreneurial training opportunities existed forgraduate students in engineering or agricultural sciences.

  • 15. NCIIA Grant and Initial Planning Sustainable Technology Entrepreneurship for Scientists and EngineersIn Fall 2008, a meeting was convened at the “south office”of the Engines and Energy Conversion Laboratorybetween GSSE, engineering and agricultural sciencesfaculty.In 2009 a Course and Program Grant was obtained fromthe NCIIA to formalize a linkage between the GSSEprogram and engineering and agricultural sciencegraduate students.The objectives of the new program are twofold: • Instill an entrepreneurial mindset and global/ sustainable perspective among engineering and agricultural science students. • Provide engineering/agricultural science expertise and rapid product realization resources to enterprise teams within the GSSE program.

  • 30. Assessment (Spring 2010)MECH 581/AREC 581 – Sustainable Technology EntrepreneurshipTeam projects were not quite as successful as hoped: •Existing GSSE projects were either too far along (e.g. SEED) or too early stage (e.g. Thin Air) for optimal contribution from STESE team. •Need exists to improve GSSE project “in flow” and “out flow” from STESE.Guest speakers were viewed very positively.Kauffman handbook was not used very effectively.Student evaluation results were strong, but reflected that this was a work inprogress: •14% answered “strongly agree” and 86 % answered “agree” to the question “Overall, I would rate this course as good.” •44 % answered “strongly agree” and 56 % answered “agree” to the question “Overall, I would rate these teachers as good”. • 69 % answered “strongly agree” and 31 % answered “agree” to the question, “The teachers were enthusiastic about the course.”
